I'm not the only one here who has a hobby....
My husband collects and paints metal soldiers, tanks, etc. He also makes buildings, warehouses, and other objects so that he can set up battle scenes. He has a whole room in our house with big tables and his set-ups. We call it "The War Room". There are games the boys can go up there and play for hours at a time.
Richard spends hours painting these things. They are tiny and it amazes me that this relaxes him--it would stress me out! :)
Here are a couple of pictures I took in "The War Room" tonight. This is the Battle of Parkers Crossroads in WWII. It took place in Belgium.
Here is a close up view of one of the soldiers that he painted. He looks big in his trench, but he is only 20mm tall.
